1000 Gifts Sunday

Thanks to Ann Voskamp and the challenge on her blog, "A Holy Experience," to chronicle my daily gratitudes.  So happy to be back in this space each week.  Enjoy.

Gratitudes #884 - 906

#885  For an incredible homily by Deacon Shane at church this week.
#886  For my daughter's beautiful voice raised in worship with our Praise Band.
#887  For the baby birds who were just born right outside our French doors.  Love hearing them sing.
#888  For The Young Americans show on Friday and Saturday and an opportunity for my kids to perform with them again.

#890  For a good afternoon with Bill & Annie and 25 year friendships.

#891  For my twinsies, Mary & Anna, and getting to visit with Mary in between shows.

#897  For my favorite...a boat ride around the bay and throughout the channels
#898  For Colleen's friend, Jaclyn, who was able to spend some time with our family this weekend.  Loved having her...what a sweet girl!
